The Cave developer and industry veteran Ron Gilbert believes that developers are struggling to come up with new and original concepts for Wii U. He went on to say that a number of people in the development community with Wii U development kits are struggling to work out what to do with it from an innovation standpoint. Gilbert says that it will probably be about a year before you start to see games just completely nail exactly what that controller is for.
“What we experienced with the Wii U is probably what a lot of developers experienced with the Wii U, which is, ‘What do we do with it?.”
“It was this really neat secondary controller that has a screen and you can do different things on it. When I talked to my friends who were designing games for the Wii U, it’s like, ‘We don’t quite know what to do with it’.”
